Ranaut shared her thoughts on Instagram, emphasising the importance of her spiritual journey in relation to her political objectives. Her choice to run from Mandi, a historically significant district traditionally supporting the Congress party, sets the setting for a fascinating electoral struggle in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

As Himachal Pradesh prepares for elections on June 1, the BJP hopes to preserve its grip in the area after winning all four Lok Sabha seats in 2019. The election results, comprising both parliamentary and assembly seats, will be counted on June 4.

Kangana Ranaut's latest film, Emergency, in which she plays both lead actor and director, adds another depth to her varied career. With her eclectic interests and unflinching Resolve, she continues to enchant viewers as she navigates the crossroads of art, spirituality, and politics.
